Fuentes, Distant Relatives.

Fuentes, Carlos. Distant Relatives. Translated from the Spanish by Margaret Sayers Peden. New York, Farrar Straus Giroux, 1982. 21cm x 14.5cm. 225 pages. Original hardcover with dustjacket in protective Mylar. Excellent condition.

Distant Relations begins in the elegant Automobile club de France as an elderly Count tells a story to the unnamed narrator. But the book does not remain here in the cafe, nor even in France. Instead, as the Count speaks, the story moves across time and space, from Latin America to Europe, from generation to generation. We hear of Hugo, a noted Mexican archeologist, and of his young son, Victor, who were once the Count's houseguests. He tells of their time in France, of their complicated pasts and their uncertain relationships. This is a story of lost memory and failed promises, one about the past's unbending influence on the present.

Distant Relations is an ambitious novel whose tale of confused familial relations explodes into one about the conflict between the Old World and the New. (Goodreads).
